Our coach and competition team member Titus Thut has been in South America since last autumn. Coaching Crossfit and learning the language in Honduras, Costa Rica and right now in Argentina. He's been coaching and training at BIGG Crossfit in Buenos Aires for a couple of months now and also did the Opens there, placing 9th in the Latin America Region. With such a great performance, he could have gone individual at the Latin America Regionals in Santiago, Chile. But he decided to compete in a Team for his box.
His training ethic quickly inspired his fellow team members from Crossfit BIGG to train harder for the upcoming Regionals. Shortly before the Regionals, one of their team members injured his elbow and had to drop out. Another athlete had to replace the spot. Nevertheless, the team put out an incredible show with a crazy support group. As everybody expected, Titus put the work in and showed everybody that he's one of the fittest people in Latin America.
It all came down to the last workout of the weekend. With only one point difference, Titus' team went head to head against another team. The winner of the workout would decide which Team would be able to go to the Crossfit Games in Carson, California in July. It was a real nail-biter..... Check it out for yourself:
Amazingly enough, BIGG Crossfit won the workout and qualified for the Games. So Titus will be going to the Crossfit Games, the World Championships of Fitness. A huuuge congratulations to our buddy Titus. We will be watching you on ESPN this summer!
